Jimmy VanHeusen: Swingin’ with Frank and Bing

Posted by WVIA Admin

Airs Monday, September 1st at 8pm on WVIA-TV

JIMMY VAN HEUSEN: SWINGIN’ WITH FRANK & BING is a celebration of the musical genius that composed songs for many of Hollywood’s classic films, particularly for Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby.

He was a romantic in the classic sense, a fun-loving bachelor popular with the starlets in New York City and Hollywood. He was also a fearless adventurer, a test pilot for Lockheed during the World War II, flying his own plane and helicopter most of his life. The program is filled with his music and includes excerpts from many film and television programs.

Celebrate the Oscar-winning composer and test pilot, who wrote high-flying songs for his legendary pals: “Swinging on a Star” and “Moonlight Becomes You” for Bing Crosby and “Come Fly With Me” for Frank Sinatra, plus ”Call Me Irresponsible,” “The Tender Trap,” ”All the Way,” “High Hopes,” “Here’s That Rainy Day” and many more.
